  • PYTHON HUNTERS

  • Every Monday @ 7:00pm HKT, 6:00pm BKK/JKT

DESCRIPTION

Over ten thousand Burmese pythons are living and breeding out of control in the Florida Everglades. They have no natural predators; they eat four times as much as an alligator; and if they’re not stopped, they could destroy one of America’s most important ecosystems. Now an elite squad is fighting back. In this explosive new docu-soap we follow three of the most charismatic licensed python hunters on dangerous missions as they fight to save the Everglades from the python threat.

  • Python Hunters: Perfect Storm, The
    The Python Hunters decide to tackle the debate over how the Burmese Pythons came to be established in the Everglades. The popular perception is that the snakes are the progeny of family pets released into the wild by irresponsible owners no longer willing or able to care for them. The Python Hunters though consider a more likely explanation is an incident in 1992, when a greenhouse at the edge of the Everglades, housing over 900 Burmese Pythons, was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew. As they capture snakes, the Python Hunters look for clues to support either the pet release theory or the hurricane theory and come to some surprising conclusions.
